Don’t miss it!! Hawley Holiday Craft Sale will be Wednesday, December 18th.
Students, bring your money to school, and parents please help your children prepare their list of who they want to shop for.
You may want to dress festively, photo gifts are just one of the cool things you could buy!
Items are made by the 5th graders. Proceeds go to support the 5th grade camping trip.
Happy Holidays and a Happy Earth!
We make our lists, check them twice
and set out to find a bargain price
What if this year, we change the day
reduce the waste, give in other ways
A hand-made card, skate in the park,
or a candlelight dinner in the dark
Homemade gifts all take time
But so does standing around in line
So perhaps this year, we should take a pause
And rethink the gifts from Santa Claus
